Printed from My Positive Thoughts by Karina Loureiro

In the mirror of your mind all kinds of pictures appear and disappear. Knowing that they are entirely your own creations, watch them silently come and go. Be alert, but not perturbed. This attitude of silent observation is the very foundation of Yoga. You see the picture, but you are not the picture. Meditation is a deliberate attempt to pierce into the higher states of consciousness and finally go beyond it. The art of meditation is the art of shifting the focus of attention to ever subtler levels without losing one's grip on the levels left behind. The final stage of meditation is reached when the sense of identity goes beyond "I-am-so-and-so," beyond all ideas into the impersonally personal pure being. But you must be energetic when you take to meditation. Save all your energies and time for breaking the wall your mind has built around you. Believe me, you will not regret it.
